APAT are delighted to announce details of the 12th annual World Championship of Amateur Poker (WCOAP).
The WCOAP will take place online at partypoker due to the Covid pandemic, with events playing out between January 23rd and February 8th, 2021.
The festival is the highlight of every APAT season and will feature 16 multi-format bracelet events with buy ins ranging from $55 to $530.
For the first time, WCOAP will feature a mirrored mini series of 15 events with buy ins at an affordable $5.50 per event.
The entire series will guarantee prize money of over three quarters of a million dollars to players, in addition to offering a bespoke bracelet (pictured above) for the winner of the Main Event (event #16) and an added Millions seat worth $5,500 for the highest ranked player of the WCOAP.
